Volunteers of America, Northern California and Northern Nevada's Fundraiser:

Operation Backpack NCNN

Volunteers of America, Northern California and Northern Nevada's Photo

THE STORY:

What is Operation Backpack?

Each year, thousands of homeless and at-risk children in our local communities return to school without the basic supplies they need.

Children who live in poverty or are homeless face many challenges and tremendous stigmatization – as a result, less than 25% graduate from high school.  Preparing these children for school with a new backpack filled with school supplies boosts their self-esteem and gives them the tools and confidence needed to learn and thrive in school.

With your help, Operation Backpack® has been able to provide thousands of backpacks, school supplies, and a variety of support services to poverty-stricken or homeless children throughout the Greater Sacramento Area, Bay Area and Reno, NV.  Together, we are helping children learn and thrive in school, stay in school, and build a bright future.

Participate in Volunteers of America's Operation Backpack® and help children in need be prepared and excited for their first day of school!
